[DB-SIG] Passing the informixdb torch

Since Bertil Reinhammar is nowhere to be found, I'd like to volunteer to
take over as maintainer of the informixdb module. I've made a number of
patches to it over the last few months and thought they might be worth
sharing with the user group at large, but I'd rather incorporate them
into the main distribution than simply post a patch file to the SIG.
How, though, does one go about assuming responsibility for someone
else's product? If I wanted to make enhancements in future, how (if at
all) would that affect the existing copyright? Do you think IV DocEye
AB (the current copyright holder) should be contacted about this?
And lest I be too presumptuous, are there others who'd like the job?
Should we hold elections for the post? :-)
